Suggestions for improvement

  • I would like to see improved managerial trainings or refresher courses made mandatory for work leads, not just for supervisors and managers.

What I like about the company

As a government-funded general science research facility, LBNL can be a relatively low-stress place to work. Even when a mistake is made - especially as a union employee - the risk of firing is low. Depending on one's profession, LBNL is an employer thatone can stay with their entire career.

What I dislike about the company

Since LBNL is a government-funded facility, pay can be low for many professions. As well, adequate discipline for bad managers, supervisors, and work leads is missing.
